We chose a 7 night Caribbean voyage for our first Royal Caribbean cruise. We had been to the 3 ports many times, but took totally different excursions. The itinerary was fun as usual, but this particular ship was older, outdated, and in need of a thorough deep cleaning. The any time dining plan was always crowded and a long wait. We like to keep a flexible evening just in case the day is running long, but on this ship, that cost us lots of lost time waiting in line.
We do like to spend a bit of time in the casino, but again on this particular ship, it is a tiny, poorly thought out space with a lot of smoking patrons vying for not nearly enough machines.
The entertainment was excellent and varied every evening. The theater served as the stage most nights, but this ship has an ice skating rink with a wonderful show shown a few times during the 7 days.
Ocean view with a large porthole window. Small size closet. 2 twins turned side by side along the walls with the small couch and counter worked much better. The bath is good size with one sink and a working shower bifold door.
We used magnetic hooks along the walls for items not needed in the closet.
Simple embarkation using The Key.
Cozumel is a fun place to shop and get a bit of mexican food.
A quick stop at the souvineer shop in Hell.
Booked a St James and Island Tour along with a stop at 7 mile beach.
1700s Great House Plantation and lunch. Wonderful.
